Sort of fruity, looks good enough to eat! I'm very pleased with how these turned out. The thread I used is my own hand dyed colorway I called "rhubarb pie", inspired by a yummy piece of the pie itself.
The earring design I came up with also. I happened to be sitting at a concert the evening after I started on the earrings, and was wondering what to call the design. I looked down at the program and saw, "Encore". Okay, "Encore" sounds good to me!
I have scribbled the pattern down, and plan to share it in the future. It will also be fun to see how it looks in different colors with different beads.
